Mark Lennihan/AP The news read like Heritage Foundation fan fiction. Pfizer, a 171-year-old paragon of American industry, was the first to generate truly promising data on a Covid-19 vaccine. And like a pharmaceutical John Henry — or John Galt — the company did it without accepting a single dollar from the federal government and its Operation Warp Speed.Major drug makers have spent years arguing that their often controversial pricing practices are the essential tradeoff for occasionally world-changing medicines. And here was Pfizer, using only its ample profits to come through with “likely the most significant medical advance in the last 100 years,” as its CEO put it to CNBC.

No Content Available AdvertisementAnd that’s part of a wider trend: Sales of pet supplies, toys, beds and grooming products leaped by double-digit percentages from late March through early July, compared to the same period a year earlier, according to research from market research firms SPINS and IRI.Pet adoption isn’t slowing down, either. UBS estimates that about 92 million households in United States will have at least one pet by the end of 2023, up from 85 million in 2018. And 90% of dog owners consider dogs to be part of their family, the firm said.Against that backdrop, the pet industry has proved to be recession-resilient, if not recession-proof. Consumer spending on pet essentials climbed during the Great Recession, even as overall spending declined. “Pets don’t eat less during recessions,” Chewy founder Ryan Cohen previously told CNN Business. “The last thing people typically pull back on is their pet.”The-CNN-Wire™ & © 2021 Cable News Network, Inc., a WarnerMedia Company.

The ice cream-like concoctions are available in two flavors named after employees’ dogs: “Pontch’s Mix,” which features peanut butter with pretzel swirls and “Rosie’s Batch,” a combination of pumpkin and mini cookies.The treats are made with dog-friendly ingredients including a sunflower-butter base and other “high quality ingredients” that are found in Ben & Jerry’s traditional ice cream, including sugar, coconut oil and wheat flour. They cost $2.99 for a 4-ounce cup or $4.99 for a pack of four.Ben & Jerry’s, which is owned by Unilever, is chomping into a growing space sparked by an increase in pet adoptions during the pandemic as people stuck at home seek companionship. Sales of dog treats specifically jumped 8% last year to $4.6 billion, according to data Nielsen provided to CNN Business.
